To the right of the worshipers (partially visible on the right edge in the drawing) is a poetic text reminiscent of the priestly blessing from Numbers 6. The text on the pithos reads, “Say to my lord, are you well? I have blessed you by YHWH of Teman and his asherah. May he bless you and may he keep you and may he be with my lord [forever].”
